Method-Year 1 Quarter 2
This text is intended to be a supplement to any beginning guitar text, or it also may be a stand-alone text. As a classroom guitar teacher, it is necessary to have plenty of classroom material to fill the class time and keep students active in learning. Most published beginning guitar methods are intended for individual use and not for the classroom. There is rarely enough materials for classroom activities.
Quarter Two: Notes on Strings 4,5 & 6 in First Position offers 51 pages of materials. Most school quarters last 45 instructional days. There is enough material for more than a new page every single day.
This text is formatted to teach the three lower strings in a 9-week quarter spending approximately 2 weeks (10 instructional days) on each of the three strings with plenty of materials for combining the strings.
This text contains 59 songs which combine the previously learned notes on strings 1-3 with the new notes learned on strings 4-6. At the completion of this text, students will be able to play all of the notes in the keys of C major and A minor on all of the strings in first position.
